Ten random things: April 20

Ten educational institutions established more than 500 years ago:

  2. University of Würzburg (1402)
  3. Trondheim katedralskole (1152)
  4. The King's School, Macclesfield (1502)
  5. High School of Glasgow (1124)
  6. Collegio di Spagna (1364)

The University of Rome La Sapienza was founded on this date in 1303. Also founded on this date: my dad's marriage, six years ago. Happy anniversary, Dad and Lois!
